Treat yourself this Thanksgiving weekend to a trip to the calming shores of Sklarbro Country with musician/Howard Stern collaborator/Twitter specialist Eli Braden! Eli guides us through his musical journey from the days of opening for The Call with his band Beggars to taking himself a little less seriously and transitioning to musical comedy beginning with a rap video called “TSA Gangstaz.” Along the way, Eli plays a couple of tunes on a pink Hello Kitty guitar and shares what it’s like working with Shaq on the show Upload with Shaquille O’Neal. Finally, the guys check up on a disoriented Dick Vitale and ask him about his Thanksgiving. Don’t forget to get your tickets for the Sklar Bros one-hour special tapings at the Majestic Theatre in Madison, WI. Give the gift of Sklarbro Country pint glasses and a brand new Sklarbro County shirt to that special someone now available in the Earwolf store just in time for the holidays!
